What is motor-cycle trials riding

Motorcycle trials is, without doubt, the simplest and safest form of motorcycle sport in which everybody can compete. No matter your age, whether you are young or old, male or female, trials is available to all, throughout the UK.

How does trials work?

The aim in a trial is to ride through indicated natural “sections” which may be up hills, across banks, in streams, over rocks without putting your feet to the ground or stopping in the case of ‘no stop’ events, with the aim of losing the fewest number of marks (points). A ride through a section without touching the ground with your feet is a clean (0 marks), touch the ground once and you lose one mark, twice you lose two marks, more than twice you lose three marks and a failure by stopping (no stop), riding outside markers or falling off is the maximum penalty of five marks.

Is it easy to get started?

Middlesbrough & District Motor Club is one  hundreds of clubs in the ACU that organise trials and it is rare that a potential competitor needs to travel for more than an hour to attend his nearest event.  The minimum requirements to take part are a bike (of course), a helmet and sturdy leather boots and suitable gloves.
